Re: Best Handheld VHF (or otherwise) Radio for Ditch Bag

Okay, so is a transmitting AIS-VHF version available yet for the ultimate in MOB recovery?

They are called AIS SART I think.

On our to-have list for any future adventures.

Still, our next handheld will be a DSC unit. Press the button and that's that. Today very few ships keep VHF16 watch but they do pick up and answer DSC calls.

Belt and braces.
